The photo is from my college graduation MANY years ago.
Born in Abilene, Texas...raised in Paradise Valley and Scottsdale, Arizona, graduated Texas Southmost College/University of Texas Pan American in Brownsville, Texas, raised kids in Lubbock, Lubbock, County, Texas, and have part time residences in The Villages, Florida, Tallahassee Florida and 11,000 feet up on a Colorado mountain.
My Claxton's are....Soloman, Wilson aka Willis aka Wilson Claiton, William C. aka Bill, William Eldridge aka Will, Odis Archie Sr, Odis Archie Jr, then me :=)
Odis Claxton Jr did the Claxton Y DNA for me. He has provided many many priceless genealogy photos.
My Hughes are from Tennessee--then Texas, Orlando and Leander. Grandfather was Willie Wood aka Bill Hughes of Pampa, Grey County, Texas. Uncle Billie Pete Hughes did the Hughes Y-DNA testing for me.
My Graves were from San Saba, Junction, Coleman Texas areas mostly. Billie Pete Hughes (who's mother was Frankie Lee GRAVES) did the Graves mtDNA Graves testing for me.
My Bradfords were from Tennessee and Texas. My Great Grandparents, Bennie H ( Ben ) and Esther Barney MILLER Bradford were from Knox City, Texas. Aunt Evelyn BRADFORD Balis did the maternal Bradford-Miller female to female mtDNA testing for me.
My Green's are from Tennessee then (Dallas area)Texas. Jim, Myrtle, and possible Alfred B Green are my main researching interests right now.
I also research Miller, Carter, Payne, Baker, Williams and a few other names. Almost every last name in my lines were all common names.
I got a brain injury in 2003 which has made doing genealogy very hard for me. I still try to make memorials to my family and very special other people. Please advise if I made any mistakes.
